Bergen has grown into a modern international city yet still retains its small-town charm. Surrounded by seven imposing mountains, the city rises up from sea and provides spectacular views from around virtually every street corner. Join this guided tour along Bergen´s cobblestone streets and alleyways flanked by quaint wooden houses and visit such well-known sites as Nordnes peninsula, medieval Håkonshallen, the Renaissance-era Rosenkrantz Tower and Mariakirken (St. Mary´s Church), dating back to the late 1100s. Your guide also takes you on a short walk through the UNESCO-listed buildings in the Bryggen district, once the haunt of 14th century Hanseatic League traders. This insightful tour provides a good look at the city´s long history and development, from its ancient founding to the present day.
